A charming hotel in LaQuinta. Dinner the first night at Melange, the restaurant was memorable. My husband needs an accessible room which was nicely accommodated. We had coffee every morning on the patio outside our room looking out at the serenity of a man made lake with a fountain. Staff was exceptionally helpful especially when the chef and wait staff...

This was our first visit since the remodel was completed. We stayed in Bungalow 2 which looks fantastic after the remodel. As always Chris and Tammy were wonderful hosts. We love visiting the Chateau because of the unique and wonderful setting with a boutique hotel. You cannot go wrong when you pick this property.

We had dinner with friends at Melange, the restaurant at the Chateau. The service was friendly and efficient. The menu was diverse and beautifully prepared. The Caesar Salad was one of the best I have enjoyed. The rack of lamb was delicious. Unfortunately, it was raining so we couldn't eat in their beautiful outdoor space by the lake, but they...

My wife and I spent three nights for New Year in this hotel. We were both impressed with the service and hospitality there. There is a small restaurant that serves breakfast, lunch, snack, and dinner but we had only breakfast which was good. Breakfast choice is limited, so after a few days you would probably start to look elsewhere for...

Having visited the Chateau last Christmas during its revamp, we were pleased to be staying there again with everything completed. The property is absolutely stunning. The new wing blends in beautifully with the original building. The patio, walkways and seating area is delightful and serene. The piece-de-resistance is Melange, the full high end restaurant - charmingly decorated with a feature...

The Chateau at Lake La Quinta is a one of a kind gem in the USA! Having traveled to many European cities, this gem can compete with any small luxury hotel on the Amalfi Coast, Cannes or even Nice. A must for anyone visiting Southern California. Impeccable attention to detail in all areas.
